I built this little contraption today. It was completely free to build – made entirely from scraps laying around the shop. Its definitely not fine woodworking, but its going to get the job done. Any guesses on what it is???? I will be posting a video of how I made it and what it is in a couple of hours!!


Many of you have guessed it. Its a chair! However, none of you guessed it was a chair for a 5-gallon bucket! MUUUHAHAHAHA. :) This will be used by me when I go fishing. I can put the fish in the bucket and then set the chair on top for some relaxing fishing. Enjoy!

HOW-TO VIDEO is here (on the Lumberjocks video page)

Looks like some kind of folding chair? For rowing? Fishing? or something of that nature?

the half oval cut outs on the 2 boards closest to the hinge have to be a clue… a chair wouldnt need those… i thought my thoughts were close but it wont fold out flat… so back to square 1 for me

It is a “Super-highly modified, choke flange-gasketed, copper-coated, dual-coned interoceter with a split-based divided parallel which is adjustable in various increments according to the pitch at high resonance.” I had one but sold it last week .

It’s a folding seat that fits into a tire or inner tube making it easier to drink while floating down the river
